Dating owens illinois glass steam says updating but does nothing
If you are an avid beach glass collector, or a collector of glass bottles, jars, cups, etc, you may have noticed an odd symbol and/or numbers on your find and didn't know what they meant. Usually, the symbols are a logo for a company, and the numbers a code for where and when the particular glass item was produced.Each glass making company has their own method of labeling their products.On many bottles, a single-digit date code along with the diamond/oval/I mark may indicate the 1930s.From information compiled in Bill Lockhart’s article (link below) on Owens-Illinois’ date code markings, it appears that, on containers with this earliest trademark, if a single digit date code (such as “O” or “1” placed to the right of the logo) the chances are very good the bottle in question dates from the 1940s, especially the 1940-1947 period.My maternal grandfather and uncle got into bottles in about 1965 or ‘66 when I was in high school, and we started digging.My uncle was in Arizona, near some of the old mining camps there. People had access with four-wheel drive vehicles and gas was cheap and time-off was more abundant.Please refer to the Research tab on the issuer/entity page for the rating announcement.Bill Lindsey discusses antique bottles, including mouth blown bottles, bitters, figurals, inks, medicines, flasks, and many other varieties.
If that was the end of it, this would be a pretty lame blog post, but as it stands I am a fairly curious person and couldn't help digging a little deeper.
With this hub, I am going to focus on the methods used by the Owens-Illinois (O-I) Company, and show you how to date your glass finds using the symbols and numbers indicative of the O-I company.
I am by no means an expert on the numbers, nor am I an expert on how to date glass using the numbers, but I have done a lot of research on the subject, and I am relaying the information I have acquired along my internet travels.
For credit ratings that are derived exclusively from an existing credit rating of a program, series, category/class of debt, support provider or primary rated entity, or that replace a previously assigned provisional rating at the same rating level, Moody’s publishes a rating announcement on that series, category/class of debt or program as a whole, on the support provider or primary rated entity, or on the provisional rating, but often does not publish a specific rating announcement on each subsequent bond or note for which the credit rating is derived from the existing credit rating.
